I dont see http://www.ebay.co.uk to be on a secure web adress (https)! Is it safe for a user to log into it from a public/corporate computer? Can the users l/p be tracked down from a possible hacker?

The signin page is https, then you go back to http. I suppose when you're ready to execute a transaction then you may go back to https, but I can't be sure. I don't use ebay any longer so I can't tell. I can verify that when you click on the signin link you are presented with a https page to authenticate.

Lets say there is a crooked IT administrator in the company one works for. Can he derive a users ebay l/p although the site is secure?
